Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts enters his second season as the team's No. 1 quarterback, and general manager Howie Roseman is eager to see what he does with the opportunity. 'Certainly you're judging him off of four NFL starts, in a tough situation with all the injuries that we had,' Roseman said during a recent interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio. 'We want to see him grab the job and kind of run with it, and see what you do over a period of time.'
Huddle Up: Hurts averaged an impressive 27.8 fantasy points per outing over those four starts -- the Eagles' final four games of the 2020 regular season. That stretch included a pair of 300-yard passing games, but his legs also played a major role as he rushed for 272 yards and three TDs during that span. And that rushing element primarily is why Hurts is a low-end QB1 fantasy consideration entering drafts this offseason.

To update, Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson remains with the team despite a recent report that he will be released, Lions general manager Brad Holmes said Thursday, May 6. Holmes said the situation is a 'work in progress.'
Huddle Up: A one-time fantasy up-and-comer, Johnson has fallen out of favor in the Motor City, and his "stay" likely only means the Lions are trying to trade him to get at least something in return for the 2018 second-round pick.

Alabama WR DeVonta Smith was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 10th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Smith will be reunited with former college quarterback Jalen Hurts, and with Philadelphia's receiving corps currently lacking a go-to weapon, he could become the No. 1 option as a rookie. He should see enough work to warrant WR3 consideration.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz reportedly has 'six or seven teams in the running' for his services - including the Indianapolis Colts - and there is a belief he will be traded during draft weekend, according to Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline.
Huddle Up: Ertz is on the downside of his career after turning 30 last year, but Carson Wentz has shown a fondness for targeting the tight end position over his career - particularly Ertz. Indianapolis would present Ertz with one of the best landing spots for his fantasy stock, but his days of being a TE1 may be over regardless of where he ends up.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts was not named the starter by head coach Nick Sirianni, who said he isn't naming any starters and wants competition at all positions.
Huddle Up: Hurts is the guy. He'll be a risk/reward option as a midrange QB1 in fantasy.

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard's one-year deal has a $990,000 base salary and no guaranteed money. Howard's deal is a veteran salary benefit deal that counts $850,000 against the salary cap.
Huddle Up: Howard will be in the RB5 mix in fantasy drafts.
Posted 4/07/2021 9:20 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Jordan Howard (Eagles) is re-signing with the Philadelphia Eagles on a one-year contract, according to a source Wednesday, April 7. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Howard may vulture some goal-line work from RB Miles Sanders and could emerge as a streaming option later in the season, but he won't carry any fantasy value heading into the 2021 season.
Posted 4/01/2021 7:35 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles exclusive rights free-agent Boston Scott signed his one-year tender offer Thursday, April 1. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Scott probably will be the No. 2 running back for the Eagles next season and will see a handful of touches each week. He can be a handcuff to Miles Sanders but will not have a lot of value in most leagues.
Posted 3/16/2021 9:41 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has received permission to seek a trade to another team, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Several teams will have interest in Ertz, and he should be a starter with his new team. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end depending on his situation.
Posted 3/14/2021 7:05 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz is a player the Eagles to not plan on releasing this offseason, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Ertz is growing frustrated with the Eagles because several teams have shown interest in him, but the Eagles have not looked to move him yet.
Huddle Up: Ertz has posted disappointing numbers over the last few seasons but there is a chance that he will be playing for a new team in 2021. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some leagues depending on his situation.
Posted 3/08/2021 6:16 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ankle) underwent ankle surgery after the season.
Huddle Up: Ertz is expected to be traded or released this offseason, so he will have to learn a new offense this season. He has struggled over the last few seasons but was one of the top tight ends a few years ago. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some fantasy leagues depending on his situation.
Posted 3/08/2021 2:59 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has been prioritized this offseason by owner Jeffrey Lurie. The team isn't unanimous on Hurts as the starter, but Lurie wants the team to build around him for next season instead of creating competition.
Huddle Up: Hurts played like a midrange QB1 last year, but there are a lot of moving pieces around him. He'll be a boom-or-bust option at the position in fantasy.
Posted 3/04/2021 4:31 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts had nine fumbles in 2020, including six in four games as a starter.
Huddle Up: To be fair, dual-threat quarterbacks like Kyler Murray, Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen were also among the players with nine or more fumbles, but Hurts amassed his total in significantly fewer snaps. Likely Philadelphia's starter in 2021, it is going to become a problem if Hurts continues to fumble at his current clip. For now, he is a high-upside QB2 because of his running ability.
Posted 3/01/2021 1:35 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert averaged 3.7 receptions and 40.0 receiving yards and didn't score a touchdown in three games with QB Jalen Hurts as the starter.
Huddle Up: On the plus side, Goedert did have 17 targets in those same three games, so Hurts wasn't ignoring him. If Zach Ertz trade rumors turn out to be true, Goedert will have enough more than enough upside to target as a potential TE1.
Posted 2/18/2021 9:46 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job, but the team plans to add another quarterback to compete with Hurts during training camp.
Huddle Up: Hurts played well after taking over the job and should hold on to the job if he has a solid training camp. He will be at least a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Posted 2/18/2021 5:30 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is the team's projected 2021 starter with the trade of Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Feb. 18.
Huddle Up: Hurts certainly had his late-season moments taking over as a rookie last year with eight total TDs, including three rushing, in four starts. And unless the Eagles pursue another starting-caliber QB this offseason via free agency, trade or the draft, it'll be Hurts' show from Day 1 in 2021. Value him as a mid-level QB2 with ample upside for now.
Posted 2/14/2021 12:51 am UTC
Updating a previous story, the Indianapolis Colts have discussed acquiring additional players from the Philadelphia Eagles with QB Carson Wentz and could look to add TE Zach Ertz in a potential trade, according to Mike Kaye of Saturday, Feb. 13.
Huddle Up: The Colts' thin pass-catching group would allow Ertz to retain the sizable target share he had with the Eagles and could help him stay a top-five fantasy tight end.
Posted 2/11/2021 11:35 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts plans to work out some of the younger receivers next month, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Hurts finished the season as the starting quarterback and likely will keep that role if the team trades Carson Wentz this offseason. He has added fantasy value and should be at least a high-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2021 if he is a starter.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Travis Fulgham figures to benefit from the coaching change from Doug Pederson to Nick Sirianni after reportedly landing in the former's doghouse due to his 'work habits,' according to Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Huddle Up: Fulgham posted a 29-435-4 line through his first five games as an Eagle before the team's Week 9 bye and essentially fell off the map after that. Now we know why. Considering Philadelphia's receivers were a huge disappointment in the second half of the season and Pederson got fired, there's reason to believe Fulgham will force his way back into the lineup and reemerge as a fantasy asset. Given this new information, fantasy owners should keep him in mind late in drafts this spring and summer.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz is unlikely to be back with the team in 2021, in the opinion of's Jimmy Kempski, who notes that the Eagles would gain a little over $4.7 million in cap space by releasing Ertz. He also writes that the team will likely attempt to trade Ertz initially, but they have no leverage and he expects other clubs to simply wait for the Eagles to release Ertz.
Huddle Up: Ertz was emotional following the team's Week 17 loss, likely because he knew it was very possible that his time with the Eagles was coming to an end. Now 30 and coming off of an injury-plagued season, Ertz's fantasy appeal for 2021 is also up in the air.
Posted 1/04/2021 4:29 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 7-of-20 passes for 72 yards, no touchdowns and one interception while running eight times for 34 yards and a pair of scores in Week 17 against the Washington Football Team. He was pulled in the second half, as head coach Doug Pederson chose to use QB Nate Sudfeld to finish out the game. Sudfeld lost a fumble, and was just 5-of-12 for 32 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. RB Boston Scott led the team with 65 yards on 15 runs, and he had two grabs for 14 yards. WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside had two grabs for a team-best 40 yards, TE Zach Ertz had three catches for 16 yards and WR Travis Fulgham ended up with just one catch for 15 yards.
Posted 1/04/2021 3:16 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor (concussion) will not return to the Week 17 game against the Washington Football Team due to a concussion.
Huddle Up: Reagor's season ends with 31 receptions, 396 yards and a touchdown across 11 games. He didn't perform as well as some other wideouts in his draft class, but he still has a bright future. Fantasy owners in long-term keeper leagues will want to own stock in Reagor.
Posted 1/01/2021 10:04 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and has been ruled out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Zach Ertz likely will see a few extra targets with Goedert sidelined and could be a possible low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
Posted 1/01/2021 9:58 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and has been ruled out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Boston Scott should be the main running back for the Eagles with Sanders sidelined and played well earlier in the season. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues.
Posted 1/01/2021 7:13 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles RB Miles Sanders (knee) did not practice Friday, Jan. 1.
Huddle Up: NBC Sports Philadelphia's Dave Zangaro doesn't expect Sanders to play after the running back appeared on the injury report Thursday. NFL Media's Ian Rapoport previously reported that the second-year back would be "fine" for Week 17 against the Washington Football Team, so Friday's injury report will be telling. Boston Scott will once again assume lead-back duties and can be expected to handle at least 10 to 12 touches if Sanders misses the season finale.
Posted 1/01/2021 7:04 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (calf) did not practice for a third consecutive day Friday, Jan. 1.
Huddle Up: NBC Sports Philadelphia's Dave Zangaro doesn't expect Goedert to play in what amounts to be a meeting this game for Philadelphia, leaving Zach Ertz as one of Jalen Hurts' primary targets versus the Washington Football Team in what could his last game as an Eagle. Goedert was able to assert himself as the team's top tight end despite missing a few games due to injury this year and should be considered a mid-range TE1 for fantasy purposes in 2021.
